I’ve always been fascinated with travel and I’ve always thought that the Philippines with its 7,107 islands is a beautiful country to visit. Bacolod City, otherwise known as the City of Smiles has been part of the places I’ve been wanting to see ever since I read an article about it in Smile magazine during one of my work-related travels out of town. Last week, I was finally there in the flesh.

Day 1 in Bacolod was all about checking out the must-see places in the city.

Inside the tower you’ll see various photos of the late pope from different occasions and some artworks.
|That train was used to transport goods in Negros Occidental back in the old days.
|At first glance, it looks like US Dollars. But it’s actually the old Philippine peso during the Japanese regime.
|We had an old TV just like this at our house before!

Shale and I came straight from the airport to touring the city of Bacolod so we decided to relax for a little while at Negros Cafe which was right beside the museum.

Negros Cafe was located right beside the road but the ambiance of the place was super relaxing even the outside area. I can just imagine reading a book here or writing!
So that’s part one of my Bacolod Adventure. More about my trip in this beautiful city in Negros Occidental in the coming days!
